EXECUTIVE INVITATIONAL SERIES

EXECUTIVE INVITATIONAL SERIES

2020 EXECUTIVE INVITATIONAL SERIES

Join us for this Exclusive Event

The Association for Early Learning Leaders (AELL) believes program excellence begins with strong leadership.  Owners and Executive Leaders play a key role in shaping early care and education. The Executive Invitational Series is an annual event featuring collaborative training and networking with Owners and Executive Leaders from around the country and beyond.  Space is limited and participants must meet certain criteria in order to be eligible to attend.

National child care legal expert Ron McGuckin and successful multi-site owner Mary Hornbeck, along with invited industry and business leaders, lead in-depth sessions and discussions.  Key topics guide the sessions, but the group and its current needs and challenges formulate the true content. Participants share their challenges and successes while brainstorming new ideas and action steps that can be implemented when they return to their programs.  This event provides networking opportunities uniquely designed to promote professional connections, resources, and relationships that support your executive leadership role for years to come. First time participants are required to attend a set of standard training sessions that will lay the foundation for ongoing training and engagement.  Revitalization plays a key factor in leadership success and ample time is built into the schedule for relaxation, relationship building and recreation.
